We had the good fortune of connecting with Juanita Corry-Jackson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Juanita, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
For me starting my own business had several thoughts that ended with one significant purpose. The idea was, in one way, to claim me back. I know that may sound crazy to some, but starting a business requires a lot of your time in the beginning. However, as women, we spend a lot of time mothering, wifeling, doing house chores, being the van driver, and so much more. We never really take the time to know or understand what we want or were sent to the world to do. Ultimately our purpose. So, it was all about showing up in the world as my true authentic self, a teacher. My business allows me to do just that, among other things. It also will allow me to leave a legacy, to let the world know I have been here.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Global Impact University Consulting, LLC, is a big part of my becoming a teacher. We are a consulting firm that offers individual, group, and corporate training and coaching. One of the things I am most proud of is that starting in September 2022; we will begin to provide an opportunity to obtain a Theological Associate- Bachelor’s Degree program. In addition, our plan for 2023 is to extend through the Doctorate Degree program. We also offer Life Coaching Certification, Christian Leader in Ministry Certificate, and many life skill courses.

It has not been easy, but it has been rewarding. If you know anything about giving birth, it is one of the hardest things to do. There are points where it seems like the delivery will be the end of you, yet the reward that makes it all worthwhile is to look and see this life that is now a part of the world, and it came through you.

Global Impact was born out of the book called “The Exchange.” “My Will for His Power. The book made the international bestsellers list. After taking a group of eight women as authors through the book and reaching the bestseller status, I thought the assignment was complete. However, God had another plan, and that’s how Global Impact was born,

What sets us apart is helping each entrepreneur who comes through our doors understand their gift and purpose. Then, we take it further by partnering them with a brand recognition consultant. So, within our scope of work with our clients, they have the tools necessary to build a great business or ministry.

I am eternally grateful for this experience; it has taught me that you can do all things through Christ if you get up, put your mind to it and get the work done.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

Places to visit in Charlotte, NC, there are a lot of things to do, but let me say I am a foodie. So we must get in lots of eating. Two of my favorite restaurants are Landmark Family Restaurant and Captain Steve’s Seafood near the Charlotte Moter Speedway for seafood lovers. In addition, there is Carowinds, Discovery Place, and All the Sports you could imagine.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?

There have been so many that I stand on their shoulders. First and foremost, my grandparents, The Late Odell and Elnora Cannon were there. After raising their own three children, they raised my two siblings and me. They showed me the path of having a great work ethic, treating people with dignity, and always putting God first. Then, there is the Late Archbishop Matthew A Barber; It is his shoulders that I stand on today as pastor and overseeing several churches and businesses. Lastly, The great legend, Mr. Les Brown, my mentor, said that as he has too many, you have greatness inside you. He told me that I could be a speaker and consultant, and if he could do it, so could I, and today, I stand on his shoulders.
